@dima crossposters have been around since 2017 - if anything people are using them less nowadays (and some instances strongly discourage or do not allow their use).
If anything Fediverse is more upmarket version of Twitter, it tends to attract people who are well educated, open minded and often know more than one (human) language as well as computer programming (as others are scared away by "foreign" languages on the timelines!)
@vfrmedia maybe my timeline experienced a change recently or I learned to distinguish crospossts and toots.
This is what like in fediverse: open minded people who do some cool stuff (please keep doing it).
